Deloitte sustainability offerings with acquisitions
Deloitte today has acquired the assets of ClearCarbon Consulting, Inc. (ClearCarbon) and DOMANI Sustainability Consulting, LLC, (DOMANI) both of which will be integrated into Deloitte's sustainability services.
With ClearCarbon and DOMANI, Deloitte takes a significant step forward in achieving its goal of being a leading sustainability services provider. The combined sustainability offerings create a new hub of sustainability excellence, highlighting a combination of strategic insights and deep knowledge of complex challenges impacting organizations across all industries and sectors.
"Deloitte has identified the sustainability services market as a key growth area," said Jessica Blume, national managing principal, research and innovation, Deloitte LLP. "As an emerging offering, the acquisitions of ClearCarbon and DOMANI will further strengthen Deloitte's ability to help clients drive value, mitigate business risk, and drive growth, efficiency and innovation through improved environmental, social and financial performance."
"ClearCarbon and DOMANI bring a suite of capabilities to Deloitte that will complement and enhance our current sustainability offerings," said Chris Park, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and national leader of Deloitte's sustainability services. "Both organizations bring a strong track record of advising large, complex organizations on a range of sustainability-related issues, helping them unlock value and mitigate risks across their organizations and throughout their supply chains. We welcome our new colleagues and look forward to bringing our enhanced capabilities to our clients."
Deloitte's sustainability offerings draw on the insights and experience of Deloitte's four primary business units, and include a broad and deep set of industry-specific services across corporate strategy and operations, mergers and acquisitions, information technology, human capital, corporate tax, internal and external audit, and enterprise risk management. This approach enables Deloitte to help clients address a range of domestic and global sustainability opportunities and risks.
"ClearCarbon's deep experience helping clients gain value from carbon management will further position Deloitte as the go-to advisor on these issues," said Kyle Tanger, director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Deloitte's strong strategic advisory capabilities in all areas of sustainability, combined with its global reach, will help our clients gain even greater value from their sustainability initiatives. We are thrilled to be part of this new hub for sustainability excellence." Tanger was chief executive officer at ClearCarbon Consulting.
"DOMANI has spent years helping our clients increase revenue, mitigate risk and reduce operating costs through improved environmental and social performance," said Will Sarni, director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Our vision of how companies should embrace sustainability as a core business function is well-aligned with Deloitte's approach and we're confident that our experience and capabilities will further benefit our combined client-base." Sarni was chief executive officer of DOMANI Sustainability Consulting.
ClearCarbon and DOMANI will operate on an interim basis as "ClearCarbon by Deloitte" and "DOMANI by Deloitte" respectively.
